SEE 2020 Vision
Inspired by the "Europe 2020" strategy - launched by the EU in 2010 to promote smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in EU member states- the economies of South East Europe endorsed their own "2020 Vision" at the 2011 SEE Ministerial Conference, Building a 2020 Vision for South East Europe in November 2011.
The SEE 2020 Vision defines a strategy that focuses on stimulating the key long-term drivers of growth for the region: innovation, skills and trade integration.
Pillars of the SEE 2020 Vision:
Integrated growth through deeper regional trade and investment linkages and policies that are nondiscriminatory, transparent and predicatable
- Smart growth through the commitment to innovate and compete on value-added rather than labour costs
- Sustainable growth through raising the level of private sector competitiveness, entrepreneurship and a commitment to greener and more energy-efficient development
- Inclusive growth through skills development, employment creation and inclusive labour market participation
- Governance for growth by increasing the capacity of public administrations to strengthen the rule of law and reduce corruption in order to create a business-friendly environment
